glückwunsch (DIY embellies)

Another episode of DIY embellishments - this time from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die.  Had confirmation cards to make for DD's girlfriends.  I chose the flower theme.  DD chose the color for this one - beige.

OK, that's cool.  Been hoping to play with CR84FN and here's my chance.

BTW - I know I saw a macaroon stamp out in blogland but I can't find it again.  I think it was actually French.  Anyone have a tip?  Anyway, no macaroons for confirmation.  Just purty blooms. 

Die cut the flower layers.  Used a stylus to make a "bowl" in center of each layer.  Used a scoring tool to curl some petal edges under.  Inked edges.  Assembled flower and added brad to center.  Stamped large flourish on card base and added a die cut border strip to ground the embellies.  Attached large flower with foam tape.

Punched a coordinating center for small flower and added girlfriend's initial to it.  Added some shimmery watercolors to the butterfly left over from an old project, inked edges and attached.  Spritzed with some Perfect Pearls.   Stamped the "glückwunsch" (congratulations) sentiment and frame from this set on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by.
